Abstract: The ‘Dyfodol Gwyrdd Glân’, / ‘Clean Green Future’ collaborative partnership for Welsh Local Authorities and the Welsh Government have joined with Welsh Water to seek a treatment/ recycling solution for absorbent hygiene product (AHP) waste and wastewater inlet screenings.
Rhondda Cynon Taff Council on behalf of the Dyfodol partnership invite companies or organisations from the private, public and third sectors to submit proposals to develop innovative and research solutions for a treatment/recycling solution of absorbent hygiene product and inlet screenings waste that could potentially be upscaled to service the demands of AHP waste processing across Wales.
The Dyfodol partnership are seeking the development of ideas and technology through two SBRI funded phases (subject to selection) that support the feasibility, development and testing of their innovative solution for the processing of AHP. The Dyfodol partnership are seeking ideas that could potentially be commissioned and contracted to process AHP across Wales for the Local Authorities AHP waste as a minimum, but also wastewater inlet screenings.
This competition has two phases:
Phase 1- Feasibility – Feasibility and development (R&D) SBRI contracts for projects with costs up to £50,000 inclusive of VAT. Up to six Applicants will be selected for Phase 1
Phase 2 – Prototype Development & Evaluation - industrial and business research SBRI contracts for projects with eligible costs from up to £1,000,000 inclusive of VAT for prototype development and evaluation/Front End Engineering Design (subject to funding).
A decision to proceed with Phase 2 will depend on the outcomes from Phase 1, availability of further funding and assessment of a separate application into a subsequent phase 2 competition. Only successful applicants from Phase 1 will be able to apply to take part in Phase 2.
Following and subject to Phase 2 outcomes, the Client will decide the most appropriate procurement route to contract and commission a fully operational solution to deliver the desires of the Challenge. Any adoption and implementation of solutions from this competition could be subject to a separate, possible competitive, procurement exercise. Alternatively, a direct award may be considered by the Client noting that compliance with the procurement regulations will be required.
Project Aims
Our ultimate aim remains to develop the circular economy and achieve a zero-waste society by 2050. The aim of the Project is to seek a solution for Welsh Local Authorities and Welsh Water that:
- Reduces residual waste and recycles AHP waste into an end-product.
- Achieves a minimum demonstrable recycling rate.
- Enables a reduced carbon impact for Wales.
- Supports the green economy, generates community benefits and creates employment within Wales.
- Is affordable to as many participating Local Authorities (LAs) as possible.

APPLICATION PROCESS

Details of the background, challenges and expected outcomes of the projects can be found in the 002 - Challenge Brief document. You are strongly advised to read the 003 – Guidance on filling in Application document and all attached documents before completing the application form.

SBRI Challenges are open to all organisations that feel they can meet the eligibility criteria and can demonstrate a route to market for their solution. The SBRI scheme is particularly suited to small and medium-sized business, as the SBRI contract are of relatively small value and operate on short timescales. Developments are 100% funded (to the SBRI awarded value) and focused on specific identified needs, increasing the chance of subsequent development and delivery. Suppliers for each project will be selected by an open competition process and retain the intellectual property generated from the project, with certain rights of use retained by the contracting Authority. This is an excellent opportunity to establish an early customer for a new technology and to fund its development.

The application form (004 - AHP Application Form) should be submitted via the eTenderWales electronic portal https://etenderwales.bravosolution.co.uk.
